Jurassic Houses

A walk in Rockingham Northamptonshire. The stone used to build the houses is Jurassic in age 190-145 million years old .it is full of wonderful colours structures and in some places fossils.

Iron sandstone from the Northamptonshire sand formation has been used to build the houses here,some of this is calcareous and some sandy, some are built using Cottingham stone.

If you spend some close up time looking veins and areas of iron can be seen along with fossil bivalve shells.

I will definitely go for a walk along the signposted Jurassic way path .
